    [Victoria, Texas]. T. C. Barden. Two Circulars Addressed "To the Voters of the Twenty-Third District." Each is one printed page, 4.75" x 7", Victoria, January 18, 1876. One is in English, the other in Spanish. Here Judge Barden acts for votes in a newly created judicial district. Minor chipping of the edges. Smoothed folds. Housed in stately, quarter bound slipcases with titles in gilt on the spine and chemise: one in black leather and blue cloth, the other in green leather and tan cloth.

    In 1873, Republican Judge T. C. Barden was brought up on charges in one of the first movements against the removal of Republicans from public office by Democrats in the last days of Reconstruction. Barden announces his candidacy to "...the voters of the new 23d Judicial District o Texas, as an Independent Candidate...The office if not a political one, and this announcement is made subject to the control of no cliques, coteries or conventions." He won the election, but was impeached on corruption charges.
